Early Years Professional Development


Small staff PD sessions perfect for early learning centres and educators working in early learning. Visit us at Wittunga House in Blackwood or we can come to you. Sessions typically run 60-90mins depending on your needs. Select from our menu of PD options:


  • “Embracing Outdoor Learning in the Early Years” – A practical workshop exploring sensory play, nature tables, and bookish play based on stories. This PD provides educators with ideas and resources they can use “the next day”. This session also briefly explores the perceived barriers to outdoor learning for educators, parents and the built environment.


  • “How Play Builds Brains” – A deep dive into brain development featuring a mix of principles and practical activities. Let our resident play therapist guide you through a session that explores children’s brains development (particuarly 0-6) and the types of developmentally appropriate play that builds brains.


  • “Play Space Affordance” – How natural assets and the built environment support play and outdoor learning. This session explores perceived barriers to outdoor learning and guides participants through an audit of your physical environment to identify new opportunities for outdoor learning and play.
